Some Music Videos On Vimeo Are Reinstated

Over the weekend, it appears that many music videos that were initially taken down by Vimeo due to DMCA takedown notices have been reinstated. For instance, BREWER's upload for their Passion Pit "Carried Away" video is now back up. Also, David Wilson's video for "Take A Walk" by Passion Pit that was the subject of the initial tweet we saw about videos being taken down, is now back up.

On twitter there was confirmation from various directors that their videos had been reinstated too.

We haven't gotten confirmation that all of the removed videos are now back up, but this is obviously good news and hopefully a sign that Vimeo and labels can work together to keep music videos on Vimeo.
